Costume Play: Carrie of Barbie Fairy Secret

Carrie the fairy

Dindin as Carrie the purple fairy in Barbie Fairy Secret. We had to do with the blue hair. That’s all we got! LOL

When Dindin woke up this morning, she mumbled about wanting to wear her sparkly purple dress and purple hair. She must have dreamed about it and wanted to play it in real life. I immediately thought that she wanted to be Carrie of Barbie Fairy Secret.

And so after bath, I dressed her up in the costume pictured above. I bought this purple fairy costume for only P100 ($2.50) and wings for P50 ($1.25) when Dindin was only about a year old at the Toys R Us of Robinsons Place. It fit her only now, at 3 years and 8 months. That means I just kept it all this time until it finally fit her. Meanwhile, the crown and shoes were gifts from her Uncle Iman while the wand was from Tita Pepay. I bought the wig during our trip to Star City for only P80 ($2). This cheap ensemble already made this little girl very happy–at least for the day and she gamely posed for the camera! haha

Here are more photos. Click on it to enlarge.

Sometimes, having fun with your kid at home doesn’t have to mean that you have to spend so much. Thankfully, I got these costumes for cheap. But if you don’t have these things, you can just make do with what you have and put them all together for a great playtime. You just need to make some effort though. I think that this is a good way to develop their imagination and creativity that is why I am all out for activities like these.

Well, I do hope that you also have fun dressing up with your kids. 😀
